Tanwîr al-Miqbâs min Tafsîr Ibn ‘Abbâs
(And the earth have We spread out) on water, (and placed therein) on the earth (firm hills) firm mountains as poles, (and caused each seemly thing) of vegetation and fruits in measured and known quantities. It is said this means: from every thing measured such as gold, silver, ore, copper, etc., (to grow therein) on the mountains; and it is said: on the earth.
